The Kings found a shooter they hope they can eventually pair in the backcourt with Tyreke Evans and a high-profile player to help in marketing when they ended up with high-scoring guard Jimmer Fredette after making a draft-day trade Thursday with Charlotte and Milwaukee. "I think it's important to get not only a high-quality player but a high-quality person," said Geoff Petrie, Kings president of basketball operations. "That's what we're getting here. One thing we can count on is he will be the best player he can be. I think that can be very, very good." The Kings moved from seventh to 10th in the draft, while also acquiring swingman John Salmons from the Bucks and sending guard Beno Udrih to Charlotte. That created a need in Sacramento for a shooter in the backcourt who could also play some point guard, making Fredette an attractive option. "The style of play that I like, up-tempo system, ball screens, I like to score the basketball," he said. "So it plays right into my style of play. That's how I've played my whole entire life at college and in high school. So this is no different."
